is that? tom foreman is in washington to speculate. good morning. >> reporter: hi, carroll. we don't know what that means. there's been speculation it will have something to do with mental health issues because certainly at a lot of local levels people talked about that on the republican side. people on the conservative side saying that has to be addressed as much, perhaps more than the gun issue itself. so we're expecting that may be the direction to go but the truth is we don't really know. what we do know is that the nra was quiet immediately after this. they often are after such incidents and they usually say as they did this time out of respect for the community and the family involved but now that a little bit of time has passed what we would certainly expect here is that there would be a clear message to the white house and to others which is be careful about overreacting at this point because the nra will push back and certainly they have proven that politically they have the power to do it not only nationally but certainly at the state level. carol? >> tom foreman reporting live

earthquake the market will think something is going to happen in early january this is the way washington works, they walk right up to the edge of the deal, maybe even past the edge of the deal and then something happens. i still think the market believes there will be a deal, but it is a deal that might happen on january 14th. so, i don't think december 31st is a real deadline, in the mark it's mind. >> steve, tell us, what are the things that can happen that will sort of rouse the market here, move the market up or down ire way? >> well, first of all, i think the tendency for the market right now is to go higher because you have zero interest rates and zero interest rates act as a tremendous stock market flotation device. opposing investments are, you know, yielding essentially nothing at this point, so stocks become very attractive. but i still think the big story and the stories that most traders will be watching is the fiscal cliff so that's story number one. an interesting thing happened yesterday and that's the price of oil traded to an all-time high going back to october, not an a

it. voters in washington and colorado legalized it, recreational use last month. and washington's law took effect on thursday. but when americans think about legal drug use, most people don't think seattle. think they about amsterdam, right? holland's famous port city has about 780,000 people. drugs there are technically illegal but they've been tolerated since the 1970s. seattle is a port city, too, a little smaller than amsterdam. as of this week, marijuana is legal across the whole state in amounts up to one ounce. what can seattle and the rest of american expect to happen in areas with legalized pot? i asked an amsterdam journalist. >> they don't have to fear any increased -- that's my experience here in amsterdam. a lot of foreigners are coming to buy -- it's not heroin or cocaine. it's cannabis, marijuana. there are strong regulations, people who are under 18 can't buy it. the mayor checks every coffee shops every year. the police are checking it. they aren't allowed to sell any more than five grams per customer. >> so are you saying that it's an irrational fear that they have,

people are actually talking to each other in washington. but it's a reality check, sign of the times. it's always better when the two top men who got to make the decision ultimately are getting in a room without scameras and moving proposals back and forth. it's a sign of progress. is it progress in the next 48 to 72 hours? that's probably optimistic. but progress is being made because conversation is occurring. >> i hate to say this, i was really thrilled we weren't getting a whole lot the last two days which signaled to me at least maybe these guys have decided it's not good to work this out in the court of public opinion, yet now we're starting to hear a little more. good news, bad news? >> i think it's encouraging. among republicans there's an emerging view that was championed by representative cole of oklahoma, wait a second, what we can do is pass one law that extends all the middle income tax cuts and another that extends the whole package and then let the president veto one, let the other go through and we shield a large majority of american households from tax increases. now, th
